THE SHAGGY SAGA OF SEA CZAR CITY, VOL. 7, PAGE 2

I  cracked open the paperback.

“Chapter 1, The Case Of The Salve A Door, Dolly.

When I walked through the revolting door of the Hotel Ballfour, I spied a couple punts playing catch in the lobby.

There was a maid giving French lessons to a show fur salesman by the lemonzine stand in the corner.

I figured my client, Stir Reel, was the old party staggering out of the bar with a fishy barracuda in a candy striper outfit on one arm and the phoney inventor, Macaroni, at his elbow.

I saddled up to my nurse-wild employer and snorted: ‘Its like the stockman said to the C.E.O., People know you by the company you keep.’

‘Mr. Friday?’, he asked.

‘Yes, Phillip Friday.’

‘The Gasman?’

‘Yes’ I belched.

Then I told him we should go.

‘Every lobby has chairs’ I said “but these chairs have more than their quota of bums.'”

SEA CZAR CITY, THE DIARIES, PAGE 8, MARCH 5 CONCLUDED

It was Hula Hope Night at Hon’s Wine Dining, so I went there for the Cow Poy Special.

Afterwards I stopped at The Criminal Record and bought a copy of Sunset John De Prairie’s new hillbilly hit.

A sad song about the leashing of a French hound called: “Cord On Blue”.

Back at my room at the Harbour House Hotel, I cracked a new bottle of Old Jack Horner and returned to The Amorous Adventures Of Cutless Kate, Mistress Of The Dolly Roger.

I opened the book to where Nipps, the cabin boy, said:” It was a rum go until the Captain, she, flashed the King’s guards which bodice¬†enough time to escape.”

It had been a very wrong day.
